Great Surgeon! Lucky to have had him
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Tapert - Posted on July 29th, 2019
I am a 58 year old man. When I was 20 years old I had a terrible eye injury that almost caused me to lose my left eye. This injury caused me to be in the Medical University of SC for 13 weeks. During this time I had a staff of Doctors working on me. It was when Dr. Michael J. Tapert came to MUSC and started treating me that I began to recover. The injury left me legally bling in my eye once I got well. 4 years later Dr. Tapert performed a flawless Corneal Transplant and my vision returned to 20/20. Thank you Dr. Tapert! I will always be greatful and you will always be my Hero and friend.
